I decided to do the first overseas heart route in Frankfurt to celebrate that my amazing big brother has just got engaged to his beautiful German girlfriend. What better way to spread the love, than to start here!
After picking up a bike map in town, my brothers fiancé helped plot out a nice quiet heart route. We hired our bikes in town with a bicycle company called 'Next Bike' and headed over the Eiserner Steg,
a beautiful bridge covered in small padlocks all with love messages on!
We then followed the scenic river all the way to Steinheim to start our 17 mile (27km) heart route.
We passed beautiful churches, funky graffiti, castles, picturesque traditional houses and many many other cyclists!
After completing the top part of our heart route in beautiful Seligenstadt (one of Germanys oldest towns) we asked a local for somewhere nice to eat, they recommended this sweet traditional german restaurant called 'Zur Neewe' and were served by a lovely lady called Elle. The food was 100% traditional german at its best! The second part took us through beautiful green forests and ended our journey in Steinheim, another equally picturesque town! Frankfurt is a very beautiful city for cycling, with great cycle paths. The green belt takes you on a scenic 70km loop around the city!
